March 19, 1936 Southeast Missourian

Pupils of the Franklin School assembled on the campus the other day when firemen of the Cape Girardeau department demonstrated some difficult maneuvers as they attached a flag to the top of the high pole on the school ground. The firemen are shown in the above photo getting ready for the demonstration with the thrilled children standing by. (G.D. Fronabarger photo)

Editor's Note:

In the upper left corner is a white building with a front awning. This was Hitt's Grocery at 308 N. Louisiana, owned by Edward G. Hitt, as listed in a 1937 city directory.
